Did you know that New Year’s Day is the second most dangerous time of the year for drivers? With so much celebrating going on, many accidents are caused by drivers that had too much to drink before getting behind the wheel. Unfortunately, personal injury and wrongful death claims tend to spike around the beginning of the year, along with DUI stops and arrests.
